Notes about product

The 40 hectares that make up the Trimbach estate stretch over more than 50 parcels and 6 villages. The Trimbach estate strives to produce high quality wines by using integrated, sustainable winegrowing practices. This is demonstrated with the winery’s focus on preserving nature; close pruning, innovative techniques for maintaining healthy vines, tilling the soils, producing moderate yields, and meticulous selection of the grapes.

Winemaking notes

The grapes are harvested exclusively by hand. They are then delicately pressed before gravity gently carries the juice to the cellar. It is here where the meticulous work of Pierre Trimbach (12th generation) begins as he vinifies and matures his wines with precision and finesse, constantly mindful of conserving the purity of the particular grape variety and the soul of the unique terroir. Old wooden casks are used alongside stainless steel tanks.

Tasting notes

The fruitiest and the spiciest of the varietals – a unique wine. It is in Alsace that this grape variety reaches the height of perfection. Its dry personality makes it ideal as an aperitif and it pairs extremely well with specialty cuisine with pronounced flavors. Gewurztraminer is a fine accompaniment for fish or seasoned meats, spicy and exotic dishes, and soft cheeses.

August 2018

Very ripe notes of pear and peach dominate the nose, while the palate brims with freshness. The concentrated body has texture from the zestiness but also that backfround of rich ripeness. It finishes completely dry, with a streak of mandarin on the long finish.
